Deduplication Appliance Software Overview About the PureDisk component of the Deduplication Appliance Software

About the PureDisk component of the Deduplication Appliance Software


The PureDisk component of the Deduplication Appliance Software is ideally suited for a company that needs a centralized solution for bandwidth-optimized data backups in datacenters, remote offices, and virtual environments. During the deployment process, you use the storage pool configuration wizard to configure PureDisk services on each node. A NetBackup 5020 appliance upon which you installed one or more PureDisk services is called a PureDisk node. The PureDisk backup environment is called a storage pool. You can configure a PureDisk storage pool from one or more NetBackup 5020 appliances. If you have one NetBackup 5020 appliance, you can configure an all-in-one storage pool. If you have two or more NetBackup 5020 appliances, you can configure a multinode storage pool. In an all-in-one storage pool, the following PureDisk services are all on the same NetBackup 5020 appliance node:

The storage pool authority. This service is the main service in a storage pool. Each storage pool has one storage pool authority service. The content router, which stores file content. The metabase engine, which stores file metadata. The metabase server, which manages metabase engine queries. The NetBackup export engine, which sends information to a NetBackup environment. This service becomes operational only if you enable the NetBackup export feature.

In a multinode configuration, the first node you configure hosts the storage pool authority service and the other services. The other nodes you configure host additional instances of all the other non-storage pool authority services. For more general information about PureDisk, see the following: See the PureDisk Getting Started Guide. The following contain more PureDisk overview information:

See About the PureDisk platforms on page 13. See About backing up files and restoring files on page 13. See About deduplication on page 14. See About NetBackup interoperation with PureDisk on page 14.

About the PureDisk platforms


Symantec supports the PureDisk application on three platforms. You can create a PureDisk storage pool on hardware you select, on a virtual machine, or on the NetBackup 5020 appliance. The following table describes PureDisk's characteristics on each platform: Table 1-1 Product
NetBackup 5020 appliance powered by PureDisk

PureDisk products and platforms PureDisk characteristics


A NetBackup 5020 PureDisk storage pool is one that you configure from one or more NetBackup 5020 hardware appliances. This guide, the Symantec NetBackup 5020 Deduplication Appliance Getting Started Guide, explains how to deploy PureDisk and how to configure a PureDisk storage pool on one or more NetBackup 5020 appliances.

PureDisk Virtual Appliance

A PureDisk Virtual Appliance (PDVA) storage pool is one that you configure on a virtual machine. For more information about PDVA, see the following manual: See the PureDisk Virtual Appliance Getting Started Guide.

PureDisk remote office

A PureDisk remote office storage pool is one that you configure from one or more servers that are compatible with the PureDisk software application. When you configure a PureDisk remote office storage pool, you select your hardware, install PDLinux, and configure the storage pool. For more information about the PureDisk remote office, see the following manual, which contains the information that applies to all PureDisk configurations on all platforms: See the PureDisk Getting Started Guide.

About backing up files and restoring files


The first step in backing up data is to create a data selection. A data selection specifies a list of files and directories that you want to include in a backup. You can back up a data selection on a regular basis by including it in a backup policy. Alternatively, you can make a quick one-time backup of a data selection.

Deduplication Appliance Software Overview About PureDisk on a NetBackup 5020 appliance

When PureDisk performs a backup, it separates the file content from its metadata. PureDisk uses global deduplication technology to reduce the amount of backup data that it stores. It writes file content to secondary disk storage, and it writes file metadata to a distributed database that is called a metabase. The metadata consists of information about the file such as its owner, where it resides on a client, when it was created, and other information. The metadata also includes a unique fingerprint that identifies the files content to PureDisk. When you restore files, you restore the files or directories that you need. You do not need to restore an entire data selection.

About deduplication
Identical files can reside on multiple clients in a PureDisk environment. However, the PureDisk global data deduplication capability ensures that if identical files exist, only one copy of the files content resides in storage. PureDisk analyzes the content of each file and stores only one backup image for each unique file in the environment. PureDisk breaks files segments. If PureDisk discovers identical segments, it stores only one unique copy of the segment. When files change, PureDisk detects these changes by comparing each file's metadata fingerprint.

About NetBackup interoperation with PureDisk


Symantec supports several ways to use PureDisk in a NetBackup environment. You can write a PureDisk storage pool's disaster recovery backups to NetBackup for safekeeping. If you enable the NetBackup export feature, PureDisk can export data to NetBackup. You also can use PureDisk to reduce the amount of backup data that NetBackup stores in a datacenter. If you want to deduplicate that data that is stored in a NetBackup environment, you can enable the PureDisk Deduplication Option (PDDO). PDDO enables a NetBackup media server to send data to a PureDisk storage pool for deduplication.

About PureDisk on a NetBackup 5020 appliance


Each PureDisk node includes hard disks. PDLinux resides on a mirrored disk RAID set. Upon the other disks is a storage directory, and PureDisk writes all your backups to this storage directory.

Proceed to the following: See Racking and cabling the NetBackup 5020 appliance on page 25.

Racking and cabling the NetBackup 5020 appliance


The box the appliance comes in includes an installation poster. The poster explains how to rack the appliance, cable the appliance, and how to attach a laptop computer (or a keyboard, monitor, and mouse). For a PDF copy of the poster, see the following: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=DOC3346 Each NetBackup 5020 appliance is configured identically at the factory. By default, NIC 1 on each hardware appliance is assigned IP address 192.168.1.1. When you configure a NetBackup 5020 appliance, it becomes a node in a storage pool. During the configuration process, you assign a new fully qualified domain name (FQDN) and a new IP address to the node. If you have more than one appliance, you can configure them into storage pools of various sizes. For example, you can configure a single appliance into an all-in-one storage pool. If you have several appliances, you can configure them into a few all-in-one storage pools or into a few 2-node or 3-node appliances. If you configure more than one storage pool, these storage pools can replicate backup data to each other. Each storage pool has a main node called the storage pool authority node. In an all-in-one storage pool, that single node is the storage pool authority node. For a multinode storage pool, you can select any node to be the storage pool authority node. The following procedure contains additional information about how to rack and cable the appliance. To rack and cable the appliance

Use the instructions on the installation poster to rack the appliance and to attach the appliance to your corporate network. Depending on your network, your options are as follows:

If only a 1-GB network is available, plug one end of an Ethernet cord into the blue port that is labeled NIC 2, and plug the other end of that cord into your 1-GB network. If only a 10-GB network is available, plug one end of a fiber optic cable into one of the ports that are on the vertically mounted PCI card, and plug the other end of that cable into your 10-GB network.

26

Configuring the NetBackup 5020 appliance Racking and cabling the NetBackup 5020 appliance

The 10-GB ports are not labeled on the appliance. On the PCI card, the port on top is NIC 3. The port on the bottom is NIC 4.

If both a 1-GB network and a 10-GB network are available, plug one end of a fiber optic cable into one of the ports that are on the vertically mounted PCI card, and plug the other end of the cable into your 10-GB network. The 10-GB ports are not labeled on the appliance. On the PCI card, the port on top is NIC 3. The port on the bottom is NIC 4. During the configuration process, use the 10-GB network. After the configuration is complete, the appliance uses the 10-GB network for backups, restores, data removal, and other storage pool actions.

About the Call Home feature


The appliance can connect with a Symantec Call Home server and upload hardware and software status information. The appliance uses the HTTPS protocol and uses port 443 to connect to the Symantec Call Home server. This capability is referred to as Call Home and this feature is enabled by default. This allows Symantec support to proactively identify the problems and be ready with a solution in time. If you determine that you have a problem with a piece of hardware, you should contact Symantec Technical Support. The Technical Support Engineer can use the serial number of your appliance and assess the trends of the hardware status. From the command-line interface, you can enable and disable the Call Home feature with the system > callhome enable and system > callhome disable commands. In addition, you can use the following command to set the notification interval:
system > hwmon notification_interval modify time

For interval, specify the number of minutes between the alert mails that are sent to the administration. See Shell menu reference on page 82. The following describes how a hardware failure is reported when the feature is enabled or disabled:

Bonding the network interfaces


The appliance lets you configure the network interfaces to increase network bandwidth and to provide redundancy. The appliance includes two 10-GB ports that you can bond together in one IP address. Caution: Do not bond either of the two 10-GB ports with the 1-GB port . This action can affect performance adversely.

Storage pool management procedures Bonding the network interfaces

61

The appliance supports the following bonding modes:

active-backup, which routes all network traffic through a single interface. If

this interface fails, the appliance switches the traffic to another available interface. This mode does not require you to reconfigure network switches.

802.3ad, which supports the IEEE 802.3ad communication standard. This

mode is also known as dynamic link aggregation mode. This mode presents all the interfaces with a single physical address. If you enable this mode, connect the bonded ports to a network switch that supports IEEE 802.3ad dynamic link aggregation.

balance-alb, which distributes both incoming and outgoing network traffic

among all interfaces. This mode does not require you to reconfigure network switches. The following procedure explains how to bond the interfaces. To bond the interfaces in the appliance

Connect to the appliance for which you want to enable a bond by using a secure shell (SSH) agent. For example, you can use the PuTTY, which is available as a free download.

Log into the appliance. By default the user name is sysadmin and the password is sysadmin.

Type network at the system prompt and press Enter. For example:
> network

4 5

Type bonding show to display the bonding that is currently in effect. (Conditional) Type bonding disable to disable the bonding that is in effect currently. Perform this step if the bonding show command indicates that bonding is enabled currently.

Type the following bonding enable command to configure bonding:

> bonding enable node_ip_address mode bond_ip bond_netmask eth1 eth2 [eth3] [eth4]

The required parameters are as follows:

For node_ip_address, specify the IP address you want to use to identify the new bond. For mode, specify active-backup, 802.3ad, or balance-alb.

62

Storage pool management procedures Configuring a secondary network for storage pool administration

For bond_ip, specify the IP address you want to use to identify the new bond. For bond_netmask, specify the netmask that you want to use to identify the new bond. For eth1, eth2, eth3, and eth4, specify the interfaces that you want to bond. Specify the interfaces in ethnumber terms. Specify at least two interfaces. For example, specify eth2 and eth3.

For example:
bonding enable 10.10.10.10 balance-alb 10.10.10.20 255.255.255.0 eth2 eth3

The preceding command creates a new virtual interface called bond0 with an IP address of 10.10.10.20 that composed of interfaces eth2 and eth3. You can also specify that the node IP address and the bond IP address be the same. In that case, the primary interface becomes part of the bond.

Configuring a secondary network for storage pool administration


If you have a NetBackup 5020 appliance, and you configured it to use a 10-GB network during the configuration process, you can configure an administrative network on the 1-GB interface. After you configure the administrative network, the 10-GB network becomes dedicated to backups, restores, and other work. The following procedure explains how to configure a 1-GB administrative network for an appliance.

Changing a node's IP address


The following procedure explains how to change a node's IP address. To change a node's IP address

Verify that the node was configured with a fully qualified domain name (FQDN). When you ran the configuration wizard during the initial configuration process, the configuration documentation recommended that you specify a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) in the New Full Name (FQDN) field. If you specified an IP address in this field, however, you cannot change the IP address of this node. To determine whether the node was configured with an FQDN or an IP address, perform the following procedure:

Use an SSH connection to connect to the node you want to change. Type the user name and password for the appliance shell menu. By default, the user name is sysadmin, and the password is sysadmin. After the welcome information appears, press q to display the root mode menu.

Storage pool management procedures Changing a node's IP address

65

Type the following command at the shell menu prompt:

> bonding disable old_ip_addr

For old_ip_addr, type the IP address you want to change. Type y in response to the question. For example:

> bonding disable 10.10.10.10 **** This may lose network connection, please do it at console, continue(y/n)?y **** Warning: The IP of bonding interface will be migrated to eth1 **** This will take a while, please wait...............................

Keep the shell menu open. You need to use it again in subsequent steps.

Type the following command to return to the main shell menu:


> exit

Open a new window, create an SSH connection to the node you want to change, and log on as root.

10 Use the ifconfig(8) command to add the new IP address.


In this step, you replace the existing IP address with the new IP address. This action enhances network connectivity during this procedure. Type the command in the following format:
# ifconfig ethnum new_ip_address netmask netmask

The parameters are as follows:

For num, type the interface number for this node.

Storage pool management procedures Changing a node's IP address

67

For new_ip_address, type the new IP address that you want to assign to the node. For netmask, type the netmask for the new IP address.

For example:
> ifconfig eth1 10.10.10.11 netmask 255.255.256.0

The ifconfig(8) command also changes the new netmask for the device. This change is needed if the new IP address is in a different subnetwork. Note: The change of address can result in the loss of the user session. You might have to log on again and use the new IP address.

11 Change the IP address in the domain name server (DNS) or in the hosts file(s).
If your site uses a DNS, update the DNS. For example, change the IP address from acme.beep.com/10.10.10.120 to acme.beep.com/10.10.10.121. If your site does not use a DNS, update the hosts files on each computer that interoperates with the appliance node. The following list explains, in general terms, the appliance shell menu commands that you need to update the hosts file on an appliance node:

Use an SSH connection to connect to the node you want to change. Type the user name and password for the appliance shell menu. By default, the user name is sysadmin, and the password is sysadmin. After the welcome information appears, press q to display the root mode menu. To add the new IP address to the node, type network, and then type the hosts add command. To remove the old IP address from the node, type network, and then type the hosts del command. If you have a multinode storage pool, log into another node and use the shell menu's network command to update the hosts file on another node. Update the hosts files on all the other computers that communicate with the node you want to change.

Note that the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the node does not change during this procedure. If you use both a DNS and a hosts file, make sure that the changes you make do not conflict.

68

Storage pool management procedures Changing a node's IP address

For more information about the hosts file, see the following: See (Conditional) Configuring the hosts file on page 35. For more information about the appliance shell menu and the parameters for the shell menu commands, see the following: See Logging into the shell menu on page 77.

On a NetBackup 5020 appliance, PureDisk does not support high availability. Information in the PureDisk documentation that refers to clustering or high availability does not apply to storage pools configured from one or more NetBackup 5020 appliances.

Storage pool reconfiguration


The information in the Storage Pool Management chapter of the PureDisk Administrator's Guide describes several procedures that you can use to manage or reconfigure a storage pool. The management procedures in the PureDisk Administrator's Guide require you to use either the PureDisk software appliance's storage pool configuration wizard, the administrative Web UI, or the command line. Be aware that the storage pool configuration wizard on the NetBackup 5020 appliance differs from the storage pool configuration wizard used by the PureDisk software appliance. The NetBackup 5020 appliance does not support the PureDisk management procedures in the PureDisk Administrator's Guide that require you to start the PureDisk software appliance's storage pool configuration wizard. On the NetBackup 5020 appliance, you can perform the management procedures described in the PureDisk Administrator's Guide that require you to use the administrative Web UI or the command line. In addition, you can perform all the management procedures described in the following: See About the storage pool management procedures you can perform on a NetBackup 5020 appliance on page 53.

About disaster recovery backups and restores


Disaster recovery backups and restores for the NetBackup 5020 appliance are similar to disaster recovery backups and restores for PureDisk software appliance storage pools. When you create a disaster recovery backup policy or perform a disaster recovery restore, use the information in the PureDisk Administrator's Guide along with this topic.

To protect your NetBackup 5020 PureDisk storage pool, create and enable disaster recovery backup policies. For more information, see the following topic: See Creating and enabling a disaster recovery backup on page 99. The NetBackup 5020 appliance provides the following methods to recover your environment in the case of database or data store corruptions or in the event of a severe hardware failure or another disaster, such as a flood:

The recoverCR tool fixes the inconsistencies caused by a corrupted database or a corrupted data store. For example, if you receive an error message that indicates that the spool data area is corrupted, run recoverCR to restore the corrupted system to a consistent state. For more information, see the following topic: See Recovering from corruptions in databases or data store on page 101. A metadata-only restore recovers all PureDisk database and configurations. This method restores only the metadata and leaves the data store intact. For more information, see the following topic: See Performing a metadata-only disaster recovery restore on page 101.

Creating and enabling a disaster recovery backup


To protect your NetBackup 5020 PureDisk storage pool from corruptions, hardware failures, or disasters, create and enable disaster recovery backup policies that support the recovery strategy for your environment. For more detailed information about disaster recovery backups, see the PureDisk Administrator's Guide Note: To perform a metadata-only disaster recovery backup, select the Back up only metadata (databases & configuration) option on the Paramters tab when you create a Disaster Recovery Backup policy. This option backs up storage pool metadata only. Metadata includes the metabase engine database, the configuration database, and the user information database. You cannot perform a full disaster recovery restore from a metadata-only disaster recovery backup. However, you can perform a metadata-only disaster recovery restore from a full disaster recovery backup.

Log on to the storage pool and start the administrative Web UI. Verify that you configured NetBackup or scripts to back up your PureDisk storage pool. Make sure that one of these backup structures is in place before you enable the PureDisk disaster recovery backup policies. For more information about how to create backups, see the following: See the PureDisk Administrator's Guide.

3 4 5

Click Manage > Policies. In the left pane, under Storage Pool Management Policies, expand Disaster Recovery Backup. Select one of the following policies:

System policy for full DR backup System policy for incremental DR backup

The procedures for enabling these policies are identical. In addition, the tabs and fields in the administrative Web UI are the same for each of these policy types. These policies differ only in the type of backup that PureDisk runs when you enable them.

6 7 8

Complete the General tab as described in the PureDisk Administrator's Guide. Complete the Scheduling tab as described in the PureDisk Administrator's Guide. Complete the Parameters tab as described in the PureDisk Administrator's Guide. Note: To perform a metadata-only disaster recovery backup, select the Backup only metadata (databases & configuration) option.

Click Save to store the policy.

10 (Optional) Create a policy escalation action for this policy.


The policy escalation action defines the event escalation email message and its recipients. Make sure to associate the escalation action with the policy. For more information, see the PureDisk Backup Operator's Guide.

11 (Optional) Repeat the preceding steps to configure other policy types.


For example, after you configured a System policy for full DR backup, repeat the preceding steps but select System policy for incremental DR backup.

Recovering from corruptions in databases or data store


The following procedure explains how to use the recoverCR tool to recover PureDisk databases and data store that become inconsistent. To recover from corruptions in databases or data store

Extract the following file:


/opt/pdinstall/var/packages/recoverCR-version.tgz

For version, specify the version number of the recoverCR tool that appears in the directory.

2 3

Review and follow instructions in the README_FIRST file before you run recoverCR. Run recoverCR.

Performing a metadata-only disaster recovery restore


The following procedure explains how to perform a metadata-only restore to recover PureDisk database and configuration information. Metadata includes the metabase engine database, the configuration database, and the user information database. This method restores only the metadata and leaves the data store intact. Use this method when you encounter a corruption, such as one of the following:

A Postgresql database corruption Missing tables in the storage pool authority database or the metabase engine database

To perform a metadata-only restore

Run the DR_Restore_all.sh script according to the instructions for your environment in the PureDisk Administrator's Guide. To restore only the metadata (databases and configuration files) and leave the data store intact, run the script with the following options:
/opt/pdinstall/DR_Restore_all.sh --no-install --metadataonly

Stop all storage pool services. Perform the following steps:

Step 2a - (Conditional) Stop the services on all non-storage pool authority nodes. Perform this step if you have a multinode storage pool. Log into each of the non-storage pool authority nodes as root and type the following command:

102

PureDisk platform differences About disaster recovery backups and restores

# /etc/init.d/puredisk stop

Step 2b - Stop the services on the storage pool authority node. Perform this step for both multinode storage pools and all-in-one storage pools. Log into the storage pool authority node as root and type the following command:
# /etc/init.d/puredisk stop

For more information about stopping and starting services, see the PureDisk Administrator's Guide.

On the storage pool authority node, type the following command to reinitialize the metabase server database:
# /opt/pdmbs/install/var/createMBSDb.sh
